Dimapur, Sep. 30 (EMN): Maintaining that lawsuit would prove counterproductive, the NSCN (IM) Lotha Region workers have appealed to the Lotha Hoho to withdraw its PIL against the contractors of Wokha-Merapani road, M/s Infra CS.

In a letter addressed to the chairman of Lotha Hoho, the NSCN (IM) functionaries suggested finding a solution “from outside the legal courts through mutual understanding and settlement.”

“The avoidance of such legal procedures is necessary as it will be only counter-productive at the same time the end-losers will be the common Lotha public. The Hoho’s serious efforts to ensure a good road is understood and the people and all concerned have the same desire for which it becomes necessary to let the ongoing works continue peacefully and without hindrances.

“It may be recalled that, ever since the Wokha-Merapani road constructions started,  numbers of fatal road accidents with loses of lives had been reported and it becomes very necessary to take the appropriate measures to prevent all such avoidable road accidents and mishaps from further occurrence with early completions of the ongoing works,” read the statement.

It stated that the NSCN (IM) Lotha Region workers have taken note of the non-cooperative attitude of the contractors. “However, as per the urgent necessity for a good road, the region authority and workers had resolved to extend all possible cooperation towards the Lotha Hoho and its frontal organisations and to the road contractors in all seriousness as it is the only road of the people, not the implementing agencies.

“It is unavoidable for the Lotha Hoho, contractors and all concerned to tackle the issue with positive outlook rather than getting the very important road project entangled and messed up in legal courts as the people are drastically in need of a good road for larger developments and progress,” it stated.
